the comments came to light on tuesday, mitt romney spoke to the hispanic chamber of commerce and los angeles in a bid to woo latino voters. the obama administration has filed a challenge at the world trade organization accusing china of unfairly subsidizing its auto and auto parts industries. announcing the move during a campaign stop in ohio, president obama took a shot at republican rival mitt romney. >> he made money investing in companies that up routed from here and went to china. pioneers. you cannot stand up to china when all you have done is send them our jobs. today my administration is launching a new action against china. this one against illegal subsidies that encourage companies to ship autoparts, manufacturing jobs, overseas. these direct the hard-working men and women on the assembly lines in ohio and michigan and across the midwest. >> at least 12 people have been killed, including nine foreigners, in a suicide bombing in afghanistan. a militant group has claimed responsibility for the attack, calling it revenge for the anti islam film that sparked anger in muslim countries w

by the energy and commerce committee here in the house. but support for this agenda also requires us to pull the plug on existing programs that simply aren't working. and the department of energy's title 17 loan guarantee program is simply not advancing the ball on an all-of-the-above energy goal. the no more solyndras act, this bill phases out this costly, ineffective and frankly very mismanaged program. the investigation of solyndra uncovered a story worse than anyone could have imagined. it is amazing to me that the administration gave a half billion dollar loan guarantee to a company that its own experts predicted would fail. a company so dysfunctional that it burned through this giant handout and went bankrupt in two years. even worse, when it became clear to the administration that solyndra was in trouble, it chose to double down on the risky bet, gambling even more taxpayer dollars with a desperate loan restructuring instead of trying to cut its losses and move on. solyndra is the most visible but far from the only example of title 17 failures. in fact, it is hard to point to a single

[laughter] bad news, of course, the 1
never was although he gave his vote on the commerce clause to the other for conservatives, but i always thought he would be the decider. this would indicate that he's kind of changing his tune of attacking more to the metal. this term will tell because unlike the health care case, this coming term that has affirmative action and almost certainly voting rights took the big great subjects and rate has been his subject just like federalism was kennedy. roberts is entering his eighth term as the chief justice, so, early in his tenure in the case in 2007 where he said the way to stop discriminating by race is to stop discriminating by race he says as in validating an effort by the systems to keep public schools from resegregate in. he's eager to get into the subjects. what i expect attacking to the metal on those i don't think so but i'm not 100% sure it is the question of the moment. this is where the roberts court is about to meet the road there is a decision to be made between what a judge believes, and he deeply believes it is wrong for the government to classify or count people by race
